Friends, the suit is finished. OK, it still needs a few buttons here and there, but otherwise I am ready to move on.
I won't lie: this vintage 70's cotton-poly Springmaid sheet is a bit much as a suit, even for this dyed-in-the-bedclothes New Yorker.
I do love the jacket by itself, however. Thanks to interfacing and lining, the jacket has a pretty substantial feel for something that was slept on and Lord knows what else.
I'm wearing the jacket over the short-sleeve white shirt I made a few months ago, Vogue 8889.
I'm a native New Yorker and self-taught home sewing fanatic! I started sewing in 2009 and today make all my own clothes using mainly vintage patterns and vintage sewing machines.
